NIH calls for public comment on efforts to strengthen equity in the biomedical research workforce

NIH has issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking public input on practical and effective approaches to improve and strengthen racial equity, diversity, and inclusion across all facets of the biomedical research workforce, both within NIH and the external community, and expand research to eliminate or lessen health disparities and inequities. NIH will use responses collected through the RFI to assist in identifying, developing, and implementing actions and solutions — through policy, procedure, or practice — to promote positive culture and structural change through effective interventions, leading to greater inclusiveness and diversity across the biomedical enterprise and to address inequities in the existing system.

To ensure a broad perspective, NIH invites stakeholders throughout the scientific research, advocacy, clinical practice, and non-scientific communities, including the general public, to provide their feedback by April 9, 2021.
